Default Go-Pro Hero Camera

Steve and Tom,
give me some of the settings you are using for the camera.
I got it
Set it on Video right out of the box.

my go-pro stays on video.

turn it on, record what i want, turn it off. I dont mess with any of the settings.

there is few other things that it can do, time lapse, still photos, and a bunch of settings in the menu that i have no clue what they are trying to say.

its a very simple little camera.

For some reason, mine likes to switch back to picture mode everytime I turn it off. So I have to turn it on, click the mode button like 5 times, then I can record.

I usually shoot in the 720p 60fps mode, but you better have a fast SD card to handle it. I should probably switch mine to 30fps. I've done the time lapse mode a bit, takes a picture every 2 seconds until you push the shutter again. The newer ones take one every 1 second or do 10 shot bursts.


FYI, they are about to release the GoPro3. I might have to get one to replace my original.

To go along with what Dale said about the memory cards... just go ahead and get an 8GB SDHC card (Secure Digital High Capacity). depending on how much i'm recording, i can usually get a whole trip on one card. they do make larger cards, but they tend to get pricy above 8GB.

and in all my videos i was recording in 720p 30fps. I switched it to 60fps on a recent vacation, but havent had a chance to look at the videos to see if there was any noticable difference. that being said, I dont think the 30fps looks bad at all.

Yeah, I generally run out of battery before I run out of storage space, but I have a 16GB card in mine.

What I meant by speed was, I wasn't aware before I bought my GoPro that there are classes of SD cards that transfer data at different speeds. The more FPS you want, the faster SD card you need. I think class 10 is recommended. I've seen some blips in my 60fps video using only a class 4.

Mark,

How did the Go Pro do for you? Hopefully Sarah got some good shots of you wheeling.

I used windows movie maker the other night to play with a few videos and it worked surprisingly well and easy.
Good luck,
